SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced the business performance of its Consumer Business Group (BG) for the first half of 2014. During this period, Huawei shipped a total of 64.21 million devices. Smartphones accounted for 34.27 million units, showing an impressive year-on-year increase of 62%. This growth also reflected the success of the launch of several flagship premium smartphones such as the Huawei Mate 2 4G and Ascend P7 which are gaining popularity amongst consumers worldwide. Huawei Consumer BG’s steady and sustainable business growth further demonstrates the success of its strategy to develop premium quality products while building brand awareness through global marketing initiatives.

In 1H 2014, Huawei introduced a strong suite of 4G LTE-enabled premium smartphones including Ascend Mate 2 4G, Ascend G6, and most recently, the highly anticipated Ascend P7. Launched on May 7, 2014, in Paris, France, and building on the success of Ascend P6, the new P7 was touted by the industry as a "selfie smartphone" as it redefines smartphone excellence with a 5-inch full high definition display, industry-leading 8MP front-facing and 13MP rear-facing cameras. In addition, wireless performance tests conducted by several major operators in Europe confirmed that the Huawei Ascend P7 tops the list of the premium smartphone brands currently in the market. Less than two months after its global launch, nearly 2 million units of the P7 were sold in 70 markets in Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle-East, Africa and Latin America. Meanwhile the Ascend Mate 2 4G, also launched in 1H 2014, achieved popularity in markets such as China, Europe, Southeast Asia, and North America. The impressive sales results of both the Ascend P7 and Mate 2 4G demonstrate Huawei’s success in the mid-to high-end market.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
